The Family Business: Doing the Work of God

Nelly Trocmé Hewett, 85, grew up in France in a town of about 900 people and “lots of cows.” Her dad pastored the village church and her mom was a model of hospitality, always inviting people into their home. It was not until years later that she realized her town and her parents were taking in Jews to save them from Nazi genocide. Her community, and 12 others in south-Central France, rescued between 3,500 and 5,000 people. And she was oblivious to it all.

How often we, like Nelly, miss what is happening around us. Because we don’t see it, we think nothing is happening, that God is on break. But Jesus helped us to see that his Father is working all around us, all the time.
